A complete comic book BUFF friend of mine let me have a flick through it a couple of weeks back and weird is certainly one of the words flying round my head.

It almost reminds me of James Joyce, in that the stories don't seem to have much of a point. They just kind of are, and leave it at that.

I'm interested to see how the images and text relate to each other considering the personal nature of the artist and writer's relationship.

He actually did say something along the lines of, "If you want to strengthen your relationship, writing a porno over some years is a great way."

Yeah, i read that somewhere. I'm sure it's true too, it's not an everyday occurance, something's bound to happen.

Clockwork Orange is amazing. If you get a chance, check out the film afterwards, Kubrick did it justice, except for not adding the final chapter (banned in the US)

yeah, but the film can't hold a candle to the book. my favourite book! followed closely by WATCHMEN :P

i have studied both english literature and language and the way this book manipulates conventions in both subjects, especially on the nadsat front.

i must say malcolm mcdowell was a perfect alex.

Yes. I actually saw the movie a few months ago and loved it. One of my favorite films. It's the way that Alex speaks that intrigued me to read the book.
